Miguel (Michael Peña) is a hardworking father and devoted husband wrongfully accused of murdering the wife of a former sheriff (Ed Harris) after he illegally crosses the U.S. border. In an effort to help her husband, Miguel's pregnant wife (Eva Longoria) also attempts a crossing, but finds herself in the clutches of corrupt Mexican "Coyote" smugglers. The three find their lives intertwined as the ex-lawman investigates his wife's death and unearths evidence that could destroy one family's future, while saving the lives of the young couple. His discovery forces all sides to examine the complex issues of immigration and human trafficking that deeply affect the U.S. and Mexico. "Frontera" shows that while a border might divide the two countries, it can't divide human decency.

"Frontera" is a thoughtful borderland drama that reminded me in some ways of the excellent 2004 Paul Haggis film "Crash". Highly recommended.

Excellent movie! Ed Harris is great. Story line is sad but it has heart.

One brutal episode about the migrants, a rancher, law enforcement officers and the quagmire of our immigration actions/inactions along the border of Mexico and Arizona (or New Mexico.) Similar issues are happening in Europe today.

Very good. Ed Harris is so....Ed Harris. He and his character's wife in the movie are actually married. The movie's a grim portrayal of migrants struggling to gain entry to the US--the very last scene was too frought with awful possibilities--I skipped it, something I've never done before. I recommend the movie.

Informative and rewarding.

More of an exposé/documentary than a movie. It is among the best movies I have seen. It is not just worth watching but should be seen by anyone interested in current affairs and global events, given all the economic migration. Most immigrants are honest people with a good work ethic (such people migrate in search of work).

- Which trail are you taking?
- The wash.

- Why do you always got to ride the damn wash?
- Because it's the best trail.

- Yeah, it is. That's why we can't keep the damn Mexicans out of it.
- If I see any "damn Mexicans," I'll tell them hello from you.
